"Hmm, yep if you uninstall it I believe it deletes your wallet from the cloud. Apologies for the trouble on that! We are working on a better solution going forward that I'll be sure to post more about here."

To me, it sounds like my wallet has been permanently lost.

Ok, I'm not quite sure how to build an Android application UI and I don't think it is necessary to find out. Instead I just added a line of code to attempt a restore every time the application starts. Let's see if this works Smiley

(I'll PM you the link to the APK)

Testing now. For the moment it is stuck at "Connecting to peers..." 0/100.

Will report back later.

Since I did not think 13 BTC was very much at the time, the phone has gone through several flashing of new ROMs etc. So I doubt it will be easy to recover the file from the phone, and I would guess that the "new" wallet installed with the reinstallation of the Bitcoin software should have overwritten it.

My best guess would be that it is backed up somewhere in the Google-cloud.

try looking for the wallet backup on google's server.. like go into gmail, then click onto account and look around at things that get backed up/saved from your phone..

I remember finding all my contacts this way, as well as other things that I was able to back up via my android

I just tried to do a full "Google takeout", but looking through the files that I get there is no wallet.dat or any file similar to this or afaict related to bitcoins.

Hi.

A couple of years ago I tested out this Android app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bitcoinandroid
Github: https://github.com/barmstrong/bitcoin-android

The short story:

After a few crashes etc I had to reinstall the app, relying on the fact that my wallet would be backed up in Googles cloud and downloaded to the phone at first launch of the program. It did not. Conversations with the dev suggested that as long as I did not initiate any new transactions the old wallet should still be intact on Googles servers.

The long story:

Read the full conversation with the dev here: http://pastebin.com/fdXWKmqW

What I have tried:

* Installing the client again on different phones on the same google account.

If anyone has a solution to this there is a 2BTC reward in it for you.
